-- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they thought newt would have been the guy to do it. and i don't think that the republicans now feel like they lost a step by having romney there. and in watching, i've tried to sometimes espouse free market principles, private sector language about how to approach certain things. and i got to tell you, there were a couple times last night where my eyes just got wider as i listened and, i don't know, sometimes your stances can make you -- if you're right about policy, it just -- maybe it's easier to win a debate. >> well, joe, a couple points. first of all, i think you're dead on about the gingrich point because i think mitt romney was newt gingrich's superior in the debate for the reason that i mentioned before. if you go after an incumbent president, you have to do it in the right way and new gingrich and proven over and over that he overtorts his rhetoric and goes too far and ultimately makes himself look bad. the other thing that romn
